Clarifications of Rules of Golf 6 February Issued by the R&A and USGA
Introducing new Rules inevitably brings with it occasions when some clarification may be needed to better understand the rules and their application.
It will also expect the authorities i.e. R&A and USGA to be willing to act quickly when necessary.
Recent events where caddies stood behind players while they were taking their stance, so infringing Rule 10.2b(4), led to the R&A and USGA issuing an immediate suspension of the rule followed quickly by a clarification of the Rule.
Since then, on 6 February 2019, the R&A and USGA have published a full list of the recent clarifications to the Rules of Golf.
